Plants and some plant products for export must be inspected by your local APHA plant health and seeds inspector. This is to ensure they meet the plant health requirements of importing countries.

The inspector can only issue a phytosanitary certificate following a satisfactory inspection and examination.

This form should be completed to apply for pre-export inspection and certification of consignments of plant products.

Please refer to the general conditions included in the form before completing the application.

For further information, see the guide to plant health controls and exports.
